Madison Democratic Committee Withdraws Support for County Commissioner Candidate.

MADISON – The Madison Democratic Committee (MDC) strongly believes in the importance of transparency and honesty from candidates seeking to represent us at all levels. Regretfully the MDC, in consultation with our members, has withdrawn support of A.J. Oliver for Morris County Commissioner. Oliver, it was revealed, was concealing his active and vocal anti-choice support and his endorsement by the anti-choice group DFLA (Democrats for Life of America) where he spoke at an event in the past.

The Democratic Party respects a diversity of perspectives. Above all, however, we hold truth, transparency, and honesty to be essential and core pillars of our democracy and therefore the MDC cannot offer our support to a candidate who fails to uphold these values.

T.C. McCourt and Dina Mikulka continue to have the enthusiastic support of the MDC and we encourage all voters to cast their vote for these two impressive candidates for the Morris County Commission, along with the Democratic slate of Phil Murphy and Sheila Oliver for Governor and Lt. Governor, respectively; Richard Codey for State Senate; and Mila Jasey and John McKeon for State Assembly.
